No, I think it's my fault. Info in horde conf auth tab says:

"Some special tokens can be used in the sql query. They are replaced at 
the query stage: "\O" will be replaced by the old user's login (required 
for update)".

I wrongly read it as: "\O" will be replaced by the user's old password 
(required for update)".

Sorry, just filed a bug ticket, please delete ticket 13745. :-/
